November 26 - December 2, week 12: Online content sharing

A month ago, we looked at Flickr, which is an image sharing site that has a lot of social elements like profiles, contacts, shared tagging and groups.



THIS WEEKS' THINGS
Thing 21. Search YouTube to find any video that interests you and embed this in your blog.
Thing 22. Find a set of slides you like on slideshare.net and embed this into your blog.
Blog Post: Revisit the goals you set in Week 2. Did you reach them?



This week we look at a couple of sites for sharing slightly more sophisticated content - videos and slidesets (some with audio). These also have social elements. Now that you have looked at social software like Facebook and twitter, you probably are more able to spot these social elements.

The information about User Generated Content and Creative Commons that we covered in Week 8 is relevant here - October 29 - November 4, week 8: Images and embedding
